Dear Service Dog Diary,
The frustrations are real. No one said owner-training our service dog was going to be easy. Patience, patience, patience. That is something that I have had to remind myself over and over and over again. It’s not a virtue that I was gifted with. However, it is an incredibly important trait to have when service training. Why? So that you aren’t constantly stressed and overwhelmed the whole time. Luckily, I have the support (which is why I am not doing this alone) to encourage me and keep me on the right track.
